Hmm I was just reading some John Barth last night..

There is no mechanism at Internet Archive for correcting OCR text, other than re-uploading it to the Open Source Books library as a separate work. But if you want to do OCR checking type work, Project Gutenberg Distributed Proodreaders does exactly that, check em out as they need help.

BTW.. The Sot-Weed Factor is still in copyright, so this is a "pirate book", IA just doesn't know it (yet) :)

Stephen,

Yes its copyright registration was renewed in 1988 and is still in copyright. Unless someone was given the right to place it in the Universal Library.
